Overlord feels like a small but vivid tragedy inside an epic container.

Though made 31 years after D-Day, the dramatic scenes have the period look of a '40s movie, which links them perfectly with the stunning archival footage.

Overlord, a prize-winning entry in the 1975 Berlin Film Festival, deserves to join the pantheon of essential World War II combat movies.

It's still a feat of period filmmaking. More than that, Overlord's revivification of a wasteland Europe offers up a powerful whip lesson for the postwar complacent.

A majestic, somber work about war.

Cooper gives it the right understated, unheroic feel.

[...] Overlord's vision of war is still unlike that of any other fiction feature: more jarring, and more awe-inspiring.

A film that slipped through the cracks.

An unknown classic.

The overriding themes of the film are never broadly stated but are subtly revealed, and the horror and reality of war are quietly played out on both the human and panoramic levels with disturbing effect.

The film plays like a 1950's B-movie with artistic pretensions.
